Homemade Churros with Chocolate dipped Sauce

My love affair with churros only began recently when my colleagues brought it at our research centre at UTM. I ate few churros that day and I fall in love with that foot-long magical wands of dough. As I love cooking so much, I've asked for the recipe from her.

Since I spend a lot more time at home these days, I decided to play around in the kitchen a bit and made churros for Aulia' ..And of course the crispy batons need to be dipped with warm chocolate dipping sauce. While I am still far from developing a passion for cooking, I do enjoy whipping up simple snacks and I can tell you chorros are new favorite of mine.

1 cup of all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
2 eggs
Oil for deep frying
1 cup of Beryl's chocolate coins for dipping sauce

HOW TO DO:

2. When the mixture is boiling rapidly, add the flour all at once, reduce the heat to mediu…

My new hobby

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I've noticed a whole lot of gusto in social media land with the arrival of 2015. Lots of people full of excitement and goals and inspiration to share. So do I. I am right there with them in feeling the buzz and freshness that comes with a clean start and a new year. This year I found a new workout routine. Life studying independently at a new place has thrown me off more than I thought it would.  I'm finding it harder than ever to make time to get out of the lab and get some exercise in. However, now that I'm a bit in track with my study, I'm determine to get back in shape. 
UTM has provided good facilities to their students including a nice swimming pool. Me and my colleagues decided to go for a swim session at least once a week. So yes, I now find a new hobby. It thought me that I can't put a limit on anything. 


"Perseverance and consistency are the keys to success, both in pool and in everyday life"

It's a cliche..Hello 2015!

It's a brand new year and I always share my new year resolutions. Guess it's a kind of way to get them out there and hold me accountable. I am so happy that I finally accomplished all my 2014 resolutions.  Like, all of them! Alhamdulillah...  
This year may set a different goals for me as my life has taken me to a new phase.

4. Join the carboot sale for the Pre-loved items in my closet
5. Buy a new car for myself

A look back at 2014

Assalamualaikum wbt..

It's the first day of 2015 and I'm glad 2014 leaving us because it has been a very tough year. Personally to me and also for Malaysian as a nation. If the political situation isn't something to discuss about already, the floods and the most talked about plane crashed have all got us shocked as a nation. I absolutely cannot fathom what went through their minds in those last seconds as the plane hit water and the fact how a simple exciting trip to Spore for many have turned it into a horrid nightmare which will continue on to the families left behind. It is Allah will. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those affected. And especially.... especially to the families of those who were on MH370 and MH17.. We all shall remember this tragedies for the rest of our life. No matter how people tell you time will heal, it almost doesn't really because you're left with one of those voids that cannot be filled.

On New Year's Eve past I'…
